Happy Fall

Morning Everyone!  Today I made a fall card using Tilda w/Corn from the Turning Leaves collection, currently in stock at Magnolia-licious. I absolutely LOVE this fall release.  Such gorgeous images and today I used this cutie.



Papers are by Bo Bunny, flowers from WOC.  The bird and birdhouse die is by Marianne Designs. I used the following copics: E000, E00, E11, E13, R20, C3, C1, C00, E35, E33, E31, YR23, YR21, E99, E97, E95, YG97, YG95, YG91, B0000, B000.


My sentiments are from Whimsy.  I also used the Autumn Sunflowers stamp by Magnolia.

That's it today! Flash flood warning here where I live today. Yikes!! Will this rain every stop?

Magnolia-licious DT Blog Hop


Hi Everyone!  The Magnolia-licious team is having a blog hop today.  We were to create something using a holiday image and then re-invent it for another occasion.   If you've come from Cabio's blog then your in the right place. I am last on the hop.

 So here is my project:


I made 2 gift bags using the same image.  I couldn't wait to use this Cozy Christmas Bear from the new Little Christmas collection recently released.  On my first gift bag, I made a Christmas gift bag - obviously this image is intended to be a Christmas image.  Then I changed the colors a bit, cut off the dangly part of the scarf and turned it into an image you can use for a new baby gift.

Here is a closeup of the Christmas bag:



I used Spellbinder snowflakes, oval and scallop oval dies, Magnolia doohickey poinsettia die and So Wrapped Lovely Heart tag die, and Memory box pine leaves die. Some stickers, buttons, and twine finished off this bag.


For my baby gift bag, I colored my bear mostly the same way but for the hat and scarf which I colored pink.  Also added a pink bow to the bear's scarf.  I also colored the Magnolia Sweet Moon from the Sweet Crazy Love Collection.  Die cuts used here are from Spellbinder and MFT.




I used several copics on my images today. Let's see if I can remember them all:  E35, E33, E31, E30, R24, R22, R20, W3, W1, W00, R85, R83, R81, RV00, E53, E51, E50, YR23, YR21, Y000. Also used some star dust stickles and ranger walnut stain ink.

Well that's it from me today! Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek at my blog today. Have a great day! hugs xo

Little Tilda

Hi Everyone! I'd like to share this card I made with you using these gorgeous new Christmas release Magnolias.  This is Little Tilda from the 2012 Little Christmas Collection.  They are currently available for preorder at Magnolia-licious.  Have you seen this collection? The bears are so CUTE and I will be coloring those up soon.  But first, this cutie:


Here is a closeup:


I've used copics to color my image. My flowers are from WOC and I used some snowflake buttons that I picked up at Joanne Fabrics.  I've embellished the snowflakes and flowers with Diamond Stickles.  Papers are by Magnolia and I've also used the Spellbinder Floral Ovals.

Well, that's it from me today.  Have a great day!!

Tailor Tilda Sewing Box

Today I'd like to show you a little sewing box I had fun making.  I'm not much of a sewer unfortunately but I often sew buttons on my my husband's shirts and mend tears in my little ones clothes. This box will be a cute way to store a few buttons, threads, and needles.


I used a template from My Time Made Easy for this sewing box.  Make It Crafty had the perfect chipboard embellishments for this project. I also used some lace trim and floral brads from Stampin Up.



Here is a view of my sewing box lid. I used this sweet Tailor Tilda  (link to mini image). My image is colored with copics and I've embellished with Wild Orchid Crafts flowers.



There's plenty of room inside the box for my needles, scissors, and a few spools of thread and extra buttons. So cute!  I hope you like my project today, I had fun making this.  Thanks for visiting today, see you soon!
